Conducting cyber security training more frequently than others does not mean less security incidents, according to a report by security software company, Tessian.
The percentage of employees who sent emails to the wrong people was highest in businesses that provide more frequent cyber training. 63% of employees that get training every 1-3 months remember sending emails to the wrong people. However just 43% of employees who get training once a year or less remember sending emails to the wrong person.
Quality over Quantity
This shows the importance of creating an effective and meaningful cyber security training for your employees. It is more effective to deliver quality training, that will change the behavior of the employees. Training needs to be engaging and meaningful, not boring and taught just because it needs to.
